Review - Rouge Dior Lipstick & Nail Vernis in Trafalgar

Did I ever tell you that J'adore Dior? Because I do, I have a full blown let's fly away to Paris love affair with Dior. So when I caught a glimpse of Natalie Portman whilst I was walking down the street (poster, not the real Natalie) it took me less than ten minutes for me to go from seeing the new Dior release in ad form to swatched on the back of my hand and in basket! The two matching items I bought were the gorgeous Dior Rouge Lipstick - Trafalgar and the Dior Vernis - Trafalgar


A perfect description of this shade would be the creamier sister of Mac Lady Danger - a beautiful orange toned red! And the best part is the matchy-matchy aspect of the make up which is extremely chic and easy.


The lipstick is a dream and one of the best formulas I have tried so far. Now some of you may know that I love to rock a matte lip however sometimes things can start to look a little too matte and my lips can very quickly begin to get sore and in need of a comfortable lipstick.
Most of my "comfortable" creamier lipstick formulas usually don't last well on me, which isn't a deal breaker as when I put that lipstick on in the morning I make a commitment to top it up regularly! I was expecting the same from this lipstick too as it was just soo comfortable and creamy on the lips - without being too creamy! To my surprise it lasted perfectly for 5 hours, after which is began to fade. Even the way this lipstick fades is flattering!!! I can not praise the formula enough, smooth, not too glossy but with just enough sheen to pull off sexy, cool, chic and sophisticated! Can I sing it's praises anymore? Let's just try: I love love LOVE this lipstick, so much so that I have already purchased two other shades and have my eye on one more! So even though at £25 this is a fairly pricey lipstick, see it as an investment to your lips!


The nail polish was also beautiful. The beautiful not too red not too orange shade is something I have been searching for such a long time! The Dior polishes have great opacity and apply smoothly in one coat - however I applied two just for good measure! They have a wonderful shine to them without needing a top coat and started to chip a little after 4 days (without top coat) so I find that to be pretty great! At £18 this isn't a ground breaking nail polish but if you are crazy in love with the shade and the whole matching aspect then I would say it is worth it but if not then I wouldn't bother.


What do you think of the new Dior Rouge collection?
